The purpose of this workshop is to review each of the Plan elements, highlight the key concepts, unresolved issues, and significant revisions, and offer the opportunity for public input. In 2000 the Board of Supervisors approved a work program and public participation program to update the Countywide Plan. Although most of the existing 1994 Countywide Plan has withstood the test of time, the draft Plan has been updated to reflect extensive input from the public (including five working groups) as well as from environmental, housing, economic and legal consultants. There have been approximately 100 meetings open to the public regarding the draft Plan. A Public Review Draft of the Marin Countywide Plan was released in February 2004, which was followed by over twenty-two public hearings in order to help finalize the project description to be evaluated in the environmental impact report. A Revised Public Review Draft of the Plan was completed in August 2005. This version incorporates comments received from several hundred letters from the public in addition to recommendations heard at the twenty-two public hearings. Changes are shown in strike-thru and underline format in the Plan. In addition, extensive legal review also resulted in revisions to the Plan.
